Patriot myths

Got tagged in a video today before I was blocked I managed to get a copy and debunk some myths.

I often have a hard time telling what exactly is happening on some of these grainy films. You tube can be bad, twitter seems to be worse for these low quality films.s

Do we know what type of ATGM it was? Did it have a tandem warhead?

Its just a video of tank firing at targets and at around 0:36 a thud , some coursing and go reverse command , surprised there was not more drama involved in getting hit by an ATGM

On second vid inspecting the damage some tiles missing o the roof and the right fender tanks blown and still burning

When you reduce the penetration of this and much more to barely scratched paint behind ERA you know its a big deal.

Old concepts implemented . Aside from crude implementation, elevated ATGM makes lots of sense in flat Ukrainian landscape

Ukraine is claiming to have set a record long sniper kill of 3.8km:

Now is it really the longest, no idea. What is very interesting is the rifle used, the "Lord of the Horizon," chambered in the wildcat 12.7x114HL.

This is a 14.5 necked down to 12.7, firing long VLD brass solids or other VLD projectiles.
